Slightly disappointing. Beautiful historic building that is sadly underused. Tourist shops on bottom. Fabric on next level (so if you want to buy fabric I suppose that's good) On the top a restaurant that looked like a wedding venue serving Sunday Brunch.

Lovely desserts on the main road. Descriptions are written in English which helps a lot. So tasty it's a must try!

The potential for this place to be a bustling tourist attraction is very high. It's an old market place with some great looking architecture in the foundation. The problem is that it's just run down, and the businesses are not something a tourist would really...More

I wandered through here on my way to Tung St (antiques area), and used the restroom. It''s an old colonial building that now houses little shops selling all sorts of souvenirs, postcards and trinkets. The first floor has fabric. I guess it's a destination but...More

Once upstairs in the market, the variety and number of rolls of fabric ( many packed up to the roof line ) become evident. Be clear about what you're looking for so that the individual vendors don't try to sell you stock you're probably not...More

I was staying in a nearby hotel so decided to walk over to Western Market, it was pretty disappointing. Inside is the height of tourism but depressingly quiet, with some small tourist shops and even outside as others mentioned there is a giant air shaft...More
